The Most Important Thing To Be Attended To Is This…

2 10 2007

“… according to my judgment the most important point to be attended to is this: Above all things see to it that your souls are happy in the Lord. Other things may press upon you, the Lord’s work may even have urgent claims upon your attention, but I deliberately repeat, it is of supreme and paramount importance that you should seek above all things to have your souls truly happy in God Himself!

… For the first four years after my conversion I knew not its vast importance, but now after much experience I specially commend this point to the notice of my younger brethren and sisters in Christ: The secret of all true effectual service is joy in God, having experimental acquaintance and fellowship with God Himself.

But in what way shall we attain to this settled happiness of soul? …I answer, This
happiness is to be obtained through the study of the Holy Scriptures. God has therein
revealed Himself unto us in the face of Jesus Christ.
